criteria for classification
The technique can now also be used to compare CC thickness with hemispheric brain volume in both normal children and those with cerebral atrophy, such as seen with hypoxic ischaemic injury and HIV encephalopathy
. Observations can then be correlated with functional scores and used for predicting outcome and function.
Treatment with antiretroviral medications and early intervention programmes for children with neurological impairment can help mitigate the symptoms and improve the course of HIV encephalopathy
Few studies have sought to determine the incidence of progressive HIV encephalopathy
(PHE) since HAART was introduced in the late 1990s.
Collman concluded his presentation by describing how these pathways could contribute to HIV encephalopathy
by causing continued inflammation, astrocytosis, activation of other macrophages, and recruitment of uninfected and infected cells into the brain (see Figure 3).
For example, AIDS-OIs that occur commonly among persons aged [is greater than or equal to] 50 years (e.g., HIV encephalopathy
and wasting syndrome) mimic other diseases associated with aging (e.g., Alzheimer disease, depression, and malignancies).

The most common primary HIV-related CNS complication in children is HIV encephalopathy
(HIVE) is the most frequent neurological manifestation due to a neurotrophic virus causing direct infection of the CNS.
HAND comprises HIV-associated dementia (HAD) (also called HIV encephalopathy
), mild neurocognitive disorder (MND) and asymptomatic neurocognitive impairment.
